The meeting of the Lake Barcroft Association (LBA) was called to order at 7:39 PM by President David Goslin at 6425 Lakeview Drive, Falls Church, Virginia.

Those LBA Directors present: Dave Goslin, George McLennan, Regina Derzon, Uri Arkin, Pete Walker, Kevin Howe, Mac Canter, Shirley Timashev, David Dale and Diane Davidson. Those absent: Frank Aukofer and David Feld.

Guests include members of the Traffic Study Committee consisting of Pete Sackleh, Scott Kalkwarf, Steve Spivak, Anne Walker, Jackie Chewning and George Waters. Website manager Chuck Turner was also present.

The minutes of the March 10, 2004 meeting were approved as corrected.

TRAFFIC STUDY UPDATE: LBA Traffic Committee Chairman George Waters along with several other Committee members presented the Board with their “Phase 1” report and recommendations for four new stop signs in the community located at:

He presented a fairly comprehensive written study prepared by the Committee and discussed it and the concerns many residents within the community had presented to the Committee over the past year including a series of petitions with many signatures.

The committee also proposed adding road striping as follows:


They further proposed signs at the crest of the two hills leading to Beach 2 and signs at major entrances to Lake Barcroft stating “Watch for Pedestrians.”

It was moved and seconded to give preliminary approval of the Traffic Committee’s recommendations for the above mentioned stop signs, striping and other initial measures and allow 60 days for residents to respond (allowing for notification in the newsletter), and for the Board to come back and evaluate the input received prior to final action. The motion passed with one voting in opposition (McLennan).


LAKE BARCROFT FOUNDATION: David Goslin asked Mac Canter, Uri Arkin and George McLennan to form a committee to consider the idea of expanding or changing the Lake Barcroft Foundation Board of Directors, which is current comprised of the LBA Executive Committee. The committee also will consider whether the Foundation might use charitable donations for purposes other than the scholarships.


There was a discussion of the so called "fort" built by several children and their parents on common property near Beach 3. It was determined that the structure was inappropriate for a variety of legal and environmental reasons. In addition, the structure exposes the LBA to an unnecessary liability. It was moved and seconded that the fort be removed as soon as possible. The motion carried with one "no" vote (McLennan).


TREASURER’S REPORT: Karen presented the monthly and year-to-date budget reports to the Board.

MEMBERSHIP: Regina asked the Board to approve an expenditure of $150 to join the Property Owners Association of Virginia which is an organization of other associations like ours. The Board approved this (Membership Committee) expense.

IMPROVEMENTS: Dave Goslin reported that the new improvements committee has met and discussed accounting procedures for the WID contribution. Dave Goslin referred the board to a list of ongoing projects which was prepared by Mike Niebling.

It was moved and seconded to authorize Dave Goslin (as chair of the Improvements Committee) to approve expenditures up to $1,000 for unscheduled maintenance on an ad hoc basis. The motion passed unanimously.

It was moved and seconded to adjourn. The motion passed unanimously. The meeting was adjourned at 10:35 PM.

Respectfully submitted,



Uri Arkin

Secretary of the Board of Directors
